  • Description

    Fluid Mechanics And Hydraulic Machines is a course book on fluid mechanics for engineering students and for students appearing for the AMIE examination.

    Summary Of The Book

    Fluid mechanics focusses on the forces involved in fluids and the effect of the these forces on fluid motion. It is an important branch of Physics because it has huge applications in many fields. Its corollary study is the study of hydraulic machines, which deploy the fluid power required in various applications. 

    Compact and accessible, Fluid Mechanics And Hydraulic Machines is a beneficial guide for engineering students from various streams for understanding the principles behind fluid mechanics. It deals with various topics of the subject with a systematic approach that makes the concepts easy to grasp for the average student. Filled with a wide range of numerical problems, both solved and unsolved, it makes the learning process easy and retainable.

    The chapters covered in the book are Properties of Fluids, Compressible Flow, Pressure and Its Measurement, Dynamics of Fluid Flow, and Viscous Flow. Turbulent Flow, Reciprocating Pumps and Fluid System, Orifices and Mouthpieces, and Notches and Wires are some of the other chapters covered. Also, there are lessons like Boundary Layer Flow, Buoyancy and Floatation, Flow in Open Channels, Hydraulic Machines: Centrifugal Pumps, and Turbines. This edition also contains a chapter on Ideal Flow (or Potential Flow).

    A key feature of Fluid Mechanics And Hydraulic Machines is the inclusion of questions that have appeared in university examinations and competitive examinations previously. This makes it ideal for students who are preparing to appear in the AMIE.

    Very Good

    The best book to clear the basics, but be aware while unboxing the book as within the book is a free CD, but as i opened the book,there was only the envelope within and there was no CD inside it. It was already taken out by someone (EITHER THE SELLER OR THE DISTRIBUTION WHERE PACKAGING IS DONE). I didn't want the CD tough but its unfair.

    Buy it!

    The chapters are well organised with lucid explanation. Student friendly if anyone reads" The Kinematics of Flow " much easier than other foreign authors. Recommended by every teacher of Indian universities.

    A good book for practice !

    It's a good book as far as the variety of numerical problems is concerned. Definitely not a good book for in-depth theory THough, the hydraulic machines are very well covered in this book.
